Saline R VOLUME 18, NUMBER 37 ~ WEDNESDAY, MAY 24, 1967 10c PER COPY - $4 PER YEAR K PROFESSIONAL SALARY ? Retired Retiring A surprise farewell party for Marianne Alpha, first grade teacher at Jensen Elementary School, produced "quite a crowd", counting all the students in her room and most of their mothers. Miss Alpha (above, left) retired Monday for reasons of health; her place has been filled by Mrs. Michael Petoul (right). The party also feted summer birthdays of some of the students: Margie Jean Blair, Tracy Eadie, Shelly Guenther, Laura Hilla, Robert Martin, and Cheryl Sandefer. It was planned by room mothers, Mrs. George Brassow and Mrs. Ronald Hilla; Miss Alpha was presented with a cake and a gift. A teacher of first grade and Spanish here for four years, Marianne holds a bachelor of philosophy degree fom Sienna Heights College in Adrian; she also studied for three summers at the University of Santo Domingo in the Dominican Republic. Before she came here, she taught in Puerto Rico for one year in third grade and four years in first grade .. . all subjects in both Spanish and English. Now she's writing an adult novel and has under way a series of children's stories around Daniel Morgan, which involves a lot of enthusiastic research on the Revolutionary War period. Jack Keliey Elected Jaycee President Would you believe that 171 girls can keep a secret? They not only can ... they did, when they planned a surprise presentation to Mrs. Herman Mehler, retiring High School secretary. F.K.A. president Jean Wilson emceed. Said Mrs. Mehler, after the event at the school on Wednesday morning: "Oh, was I surprised! Not one thing leaked out!" Although she describes the post she has held for 11 years as "just secretary", it was techni- MEHA Zoning Tabled Pending Tax Agreement A petition to rezone MEHA to the category "Community Unit Plan" has been tabled by Council, pending a written agreement on future tax arrangements. The more than 200 acres of the educators' retirement village have been on the tax rolls since the land was annexed to the city some years ago. City utilities and services have been extended to the site where, so far, only a few duplex houses have been built. Major construction was slated for this year. But state legislation which went into effect last year provided a tax exemption for such retirement projects, and taxes which the city does not collect will be reimbursed by the state. Councilmen are concerned that future • legislation may end state reimbursements but leave MEHA still tax exempt, and they have asked for a written agreement to back up earlier verbal agreements on MEHA's tax status.

Retiring at the end of the school year, she plans to "go home and do work that has been neglected"; she has also undertaken some more church work. For many years she has been honorary chapter mother to the Future Homemakers Association, of which the 171 close-mouthed gals are members. They presented her with a silver tray and a dozen roses, in a ceremony at the school's Little Theater; and their state delegates put on a skit.

We only ask that they pay their fair share if, some time in the future, the state should stop reimbursing the city." At issue is "point five" of a city-MEHA contract, which specifies that the village will ; pay .taxes if ithe .state reim-. bursement is ever halted . . . whether or not the exemption is retained. MEHA representatives said they would discuss the point further." City officials were agreeable, but firm. Said the mayor: "The next move is up to them." Said Councilman George Anderson: "No agreement, no rezoning." Visitors from Hudson were toured and dined by Saline officials on Mayor's Exchange Day, Monday. Mayor pro tem George Anderson (left) escorted the group, which included (left to right) Mayor and Mrs. Harlow Eastman and Councilman and Mrs. Lewis Murdock of Hudson; and Saline chairmen of Michigan Week and their wives, Mr. and Mrs. George Newton, Mr. and Mrs. Dave Cobb, and Mr. and Mrs. Leroy King. Mayors Will Swap Visits But'Not Towns ROTARY CLUB AIDS MYI MUSIC GROUP The Saline Education Association, which has asked for a professional salary base of $7,500, in a package of proposals for negotiation, this week listed its reasons, compared local teacher salaries with those in other occupations, and described its educational activities other than teaching. Negotiators for the SEA and the School District have met twice on contracts for next year hut are "still on the preliminaries", according to Gerald Coe, Board of Education member. The next meeting is scheduled June 1. SEA cited seven reasons for seeking a base of $7,500: "1. To encourage the establishment of a professionally oriented teaching staff who are career teachers, highly qualified, able to meet the standards set by hiring officials and our school system, looking to the Saline Area 'School system for a permanent future in the field of education." "2. To encourage the Turing of educators (in all areas of the curriculum) who will be an asset to the community, the school system and especially the students." "3. To encourage application from the top college graduates and teachers who have proven experienec and training to apply at Saline." "4.

Johnson reported that the city has a municipal golf course and there is a privately-owned trout pond. ("There I was in my blue serge suit, casting for trout." He and Councilman Glenn Clark, of Saline, caught four each. Their wives forwent the fishing.) The city hall is in a converted store; there is a new, modern hospital about as big as Saline's; they have an old Carnegie library, "handsome and fairly large". He didn't see a city park. They hope to launch a program of painting their downtown store fronts in a style similar to Saline's, he said. He was particularly impressed by a project of the senior and junior high shop classes: The students have built an. entire house, four bedrooms, 2% baths, bi-level, centrally air - conditioned. They did wiring, plumbing, and all work except the masonry, and think their house will sell for about $26,000. Said the industrial arts instructor: "We got tired of building tie racks." In Saline, the visiting contingent was escorted by Mayor pro tem George Anderson, City Administrator Mike Strait, Clerk Maurice Doll; and Supervisor Robert Harrison, plus Clem Corona, assistant High School principal/and Bert Emerson, Student Council president. Untiring A permanent memorial of Saline's unforgettable Centennial arrived this week ... two handsome Tedwood and masonry benches were installed downtown for the convenience of passers-by.

They might properly be called "Charlotte's benches"fheeause she said' from the beginning that all the work she did for the Centennial was intended to assure that such benches could he purchased with remaining Centennial funds. It took a lot of volunteer wotik-to pay for two benches"... but she did it, and then some.
